Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yeah well that .xinitrc doesnt rellly open it up... i have no fricking clue what it does.. it didnt exist till i created it.. and i have to go thru failsafe: blackbox.. to get into it... exec blackbox or blackbox in my .xinitrc makes no difference.. BUT... when it says blackbox in there... when i do startx -- :1 & it defaultly loads blcakbox.. :-/ i thikn.. weird huh?
also control alt backspace is supposed to kill the current display not shutdown your whole computer!!! just log you out kinda... i dont see why you dont just create a new display [control alt f1 and log in from there and try running window maker..]
Ok... heh another question.. Is there anyways to add more icons to window maker then the default ones? Oh, and another thing.... I dled, and installed gkrellm.... I was wondering if there is a way, so that when ever I go into window maker that it will always load too, instead of me having to have to go to run, and typeing in gkrellm every time?
Yeah, I added the gkrellm & into .xintric(?) and I also went into the preferences, and clicked on something about remembering the postition on the screen that it was in.. Hope fully that will work, and I'm going to look for those icons now...
